Harassment and bullying

The University of Sheffield is committed to promoting the highest standards of behaviour to maintain a working, learning and social environment where everyone is treated fairly and with respect.


Our Commitment

We encourage all students to read the Our Commitment partnership document, which sets out the expectations of both the University and of students in order to help ensure the best learning experience.

University support

Ours is a motivated and diverse University community, where staff and students have a right to expect high standards from each other and to work together to maximise the benefits of difference.

If you believe you are being subjected to harassment or bullying of any form, you do not have to feel it is your fault and you do not have to tolerate it.

Any student who suffers from harassment or bullying from any individual or group throughout their student experience will have the support of the University to ensure that it stops. 

There are various ways in which an individual can deal with harassment, ranging from asking the person to stop, to making a formal complaint.

Talk to someone

If you're being subjected to harassment or bullying and want to talk to somebody, you can talk to the Harassment and Bullying Support Network in the Student Advice Centre.
